HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL BLOGGER

download (8)HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL BLOGGER, well that is a question that writers have been asking for years now, and am hoping to be able to answer some of the questions for you.

Blogging is such a diverse niche, and it can range from writing about cats for example to the top travel destinations, in other words, absolutely anything goes. Depending on what you write about, and how popular that subject matter is, will determine the amount of readers you can attract to view your blog.

My standard plan for a blog is as follows.

  1. Determine the type of content you want to write about.

It’s very important that you decide what you are going to write about, it can be one topic or a number of topics, but remember people need to know that you are the go-to blogger for a particular subject or story.

2. Make sure your website is ready for your readers.

Far too often I have visited websites and they are nowhere near ready, again it’s very important that your site’s navigation menus are optimised so the reader can find what they are looking for without too much effort. Make sure your sharing icons are in place and set up properly because of the broader reach of your posts the more site traffic you can attract. If like me you test your blog site on a free hosting plan that’s fine, but if you are serious about becoming a successful blogger you must use a paid host like https://www.bluehost.com where you will receive all the tools necessary to build a great website fit for blogging.

3. Post frequently with fresh relevant content.

It’s important that you post often as your more likely to be remembered than somebody who only posts say twice a month, you are also giving potential readers more choice.

make sure your post is s.e.o. ready and has included the correct ratio of keywords as this will help you to be found easier through the search engines. Make sure that the headlines you use are no more than 4-5 words long, and make it as interesting as possible.

4. Engage with your readers

By engaging with your readers you are sending a message that you are not just after the likes and follows, but you genuinely want them to read your posts.You will also find that your readers will want to return to read some more of your posts because they know that you actually care what they think, and this is really important and can make a really big difference.

5. Overview

By following the simple steps above there is no guarantee of success, but it will go a long way to giving you the best possible chance. Patience is the key word here, as it can take months, sometimes years to build a successful blog, and along the way you will fail several times. Desp[ite everything I have said, I want to emphasise that if your blog is just for your occasional thoughts or story’s, and you only post once a month, then that is absolutely fine, the important thing is that you continue to write, and if that’s what you enjoy doing then your blog is already a success, and people like me will always read them.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

Hong Kong, Beyond the Movie’s Set

p o s h p a c k e r t e a m

Growing up in the 90’s, Sure I knew Hong Kong through Movies. The era of Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat and Leslie Cheung put Hong Kong in the Golden Age of Asian Movie. Drunken Master was beyond famous at that time in my country. Hong Kong become my fantasy, as the glam and the action collide as the back ground of “Chungking Express” and “Once a thief”. Decade later “fast&Furious 6”, “Die another day” and “Black Hat” sets in Hong Kong.  Those movies makes Hong Kong dangerous and exciting at the same time.

A toursits’ guide to London

threebrits

Despite both living close to London we do love having a touristy day out in London and exploring the amazing city. London is incredible because there is so much to do regardless of your age and there is also so much history to the city.
We have decided to pull together some ideas if you are planning a day out in London. You can pick your favourites from the below list and tailor the day to suit your needs. The great thing about London is that a lot of it is walking distance away from each other and the best way to explore a city is by walking. When you walk somewhere you find areas that you wouldn’t normally discover and really explore the city.

Central Tourist locations:
Buckingham Palace – get off the tube at Green Park and walk to Buckingham Palace to see one of the most famous…

A Tourists Guide to Paris

threebrits

Paris is an amazing city and we were lucky enough to spend the weekend there at the end of April. There so much to see and do so we have written down the top 10 things to do when visiting Paris:

1) Eiffel Tower
Of course you have to see the Eiffel Tower when visiting Paris, although you don’t necessarily have to go to the top of it, sometimes you want it in pictured as its so iconic and if you have climbed up it it wont feature in your pictures. The best place to go for pictures directly in front of the tower is the Place du Trocadero, you can walk through the gardens and up the stairs and have stunning views of the Eiffel Tower. As for all places in Paris to get good pictures it best to go early and beat the crowds.

2) Arc du Triomphe

New York: The Good, The Bad, The Beautiful

Olive's World

Every block has a different smell. One block it’s like someone puked up trash, the next block fried food, the next block flowers mixed with roasted peanuts. Sometimes it’s not even blocks – within seconds one gets a wiff of every smell known to man. Some may say this is what makes New York dirty (I mean it is in some parts) but I think it’s just another quality that makes it the most unique city in the world. I was lucky enough to take a business trip there combined with pleasure.

Every part of New York City gives me life – the people, the energy, the smells, the sounds, the food, the art, the culture. I’ve been in love with this city my whole life. It is where I belong, and I will be there for good sooner than later (follow me on Instagram for updates: @olivesworld) – but for now…

Traveler Tidbits – Five Hours in San Francisco, California

The Adventuress Soap CO


San Francisco is a city I will always have a love/hate relationship with. I love the hilly beauty of the city, yet I hate the cold misty fog that always seems to set in. I love the brilliant marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, yet I hate driving around the cities infamous hills and windy roads. I love the vibrant and bustling atmosphere of Fisherman’s Wharf, yet I hate how high strung the city can feel sometimes. Nevertheless, despite the love/hate vibe, San Francisco is truly an amazing, bustling and diverse city that everyone should visit at least once in their life. Whether you have a layover, or you’re just passing through here are my recommendations on how you can leave your heart and mark in San Francisco if you’re short on time.

1) Check Out the Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is the pinnacle poster child of…
